Me: Ooo! There's a spot, Lucy! We're living right! *start to turn, then reverse*
Lucy: Why we not go in there, mama?
Me: I can't fit because that guy is over the line and I don't have enough room.
Lucy: Oh, dang it! That guy is a jake!
Assuming that "jake" equals jerk, it appears that Lucy has been listening to Patrick and me slip up in our disguising of that word. Usually we call jerks "J's" or mega-jerks "Double J's," but apparently we haven't been abbreviating effectively.
As for "dang it," that comes directly from Patrick.
Little kids who try to swear—or even correctly swear—are just so hilarious to me. Is that bad?

"Mom! I've got the hick pups!": hiccups
